Why Choose Dental Implants?

Implant dentistry is the most advanced therapy available to replace missing teeth. An expert in performing dental implant procedures, Dr. Coleman trained with Dr. Leonard Linkow who helped establish the dental implant procedure and made it what is today. 
Dental implants may offer you important advantages compared to other treatment options. Improved health and enhanced appearance may both lead to greater self-confidence and a better quality of life. Schedule a consultation at 516-378-0867 to see if you are a candidate for dental implants.

Indications for Dental ImplantsImplant Dentistry in Merrick, NY

Implants may be used to replace teeth in single-tooth spaces, groups of two or more missing teeth, or where the teeth are completely missing in one or both jaws. Once placed, the implants are used to support individual crowns, or bridges that are attached to the implants. Implants may also be used to help retain removable dentures more securely.

Dental implants: Improved Quality Of Life

Dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution for tooth loss and are cared for with brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Caring for non-implant tooth replacements can be much less convenient compared to implant-supported teeth. Dental implants also eliminate the need to use messy dental adhesive

Enhanced Appearance

When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone begins to shrink away or resorb and becomes increasingly brittle, compromising adjacent teeth and increasing the chance of a changed appearance. Non-implant supported dentures, such as partials or bridges, may actually accelerate this process. Dental implants may help to prevent or slow bone resorption, helping to preserve your natural facial contours.

Candidates for Implant Dentistry

Most patients who are healthy with no restrictions for undergoing minor dental surgical procedures and who also have good oral hygiene are good candidates for dental implants. When you come in for a consultation, we will assess the area to determine whether there is sufficient bone volume and gum thickness to allow placement of an implant. The process will involve inspection, palpation, and gentle probing of the potential implant site and adjacent teeth. In straightforward cases, simple dental x-rays are usually sufficient to examine the bone. In more complex cases, specialized implant x-rays, known as tomograms, are usually required.
